Wordless: The Countess


If you hang around here any length of time you realize that my Wordless entries are never entirely wordless......just more brief than normal.

This is Countess Virginia Oldoini....more than likely the very first fashion/photography model.  She was also the mistress of Emperor Napoleon III and held the ear of many powerful people.

I posted another picture of her earlier this week on my Facebook page. Like it today!

The Wordless Wednesday hub can be found here.

That post really says a lot without words. That mystery of the lady in black in white, brilliant.
